The hotel staff were superbly helpful and they even had beach chairs, towels, and an umbrella for us to borrow for the beach. Since our flight wasn't until late in the day, after check out, They were kind enough to let us park there after check out while we enjoyed the beach and tidepools. We loved that the Hotel is...

Very friendly, nice little pool, close to beach. But some rooms are right on the road, traffic noise not good! If you are staying for a few days then make sure you get a room at the back. The location is great for beach, bars and restaurants.

We also love our location. We love not charging to park your car also. We do have 3 rooms on the street side of our property and always make a point to let our guests know that when they make their reservations. There is traffic noise on Coast Highway-no doubt about it-and all the hotels are on the coast. We...

Nothing really much to add to all of the other reviews. The owners are very nice, the road noise is not really an issue but the walls are a little thin. The rooms are clean and they provide you with a nice beach towel for your excursions there. Good pool area and plenty of parking. The place is larger then...

Myself and 3 friends stayed at The Tides last night for our annual friends retreat. The staff couldn't be more friendly. Parking was free and they are within walking distance of a few shops, galleries, Starbucks and Main Beach. Our room was very nice but small with 2 queen beds. The shower was tiny but lots of water pressure and...

The owners are the nicest people. The location was great. Right across the street from Heisler park which is perfect for strolling along the beautiful paths overlooking the ocean and main beach. The room was older, which was fine but I found the bed to be "springy" which caught me off guard. It made me miss my own bed a...

Thank you so much for the review. We receive so many compliments about our comfortable beds, so we will check out "springy" and resolve that problem. Thanks for letting us know. We do love our place and our location as well. On behalf of our staff and management, we look forward to your return visit. Linda

Last week we returned from a week's stay at the Tides. We don't usually stay in one place for this long, but loved it so much, we wished we had several more days! It was our first trip to SoCal, and Laguna Beach was the perfect spot from which to explore, anywhere from Los Angeles to San Diego. The Tides...

Thank you for the lovely review. Very happy to hear you will be visiting Laguna Beach again. You must come back in the summer when our fabulous art festivals happen. We also have the best restaurants. We and The Tides are looking forward to your next visit--soon we hope--to your home away from home. Linda

I just returned from 5 great days in Laguna, and the Tides Inn was the perfect place to stay. It was within walking distance of everything I needed, including a great grocery store. A short walk to beautiful Heisler park, the gateway to the long wonderful beach and the main part of town. The managers Joe and Judy were wonderful...

Nothing is better than to be called "perfect" in our minds! Thanks so much. We suggest putting that precious dog in the car and returning soon. Big dogs need beach runs. Looking forward to your return visit. Thanks so much, Linda

Great place. Close to the beach and the art galleries. Nice pool with an outdoor fireplace to sit around after a walk on the beach. Nice to be able to bring back take out or cook a dinner. Hardly notice road noise and we're from the 'burbs. Pool is great and the place has beach gear in case you forgot...

It was the only place left that took large dogs. There was a pet fee which is annoying but expected. The owner was there at check in and we were able to check in early at no fee. Nice walk to restaurants and downtown. The room wasn't fancy but bed and breakfast feel. Bed was comfortable. Free parking. Would stay...

So glad you liked us. We do charge a pet fee per dog per day but it is safer and nicer and less expensive than boarding your pets. Cleaning up after (especially) large dogs is extra work for our girls also. We do have free parking, free wifi, free ice, beach towels and toys available and no extra charges at...
